Australian Apprenticeship Support Network
The Australian Government contracts Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) Providers as the first point of contact to provide information and advice to support employers, apprentices and trainees across Australia to better navigate the apprenticeship system.
A Memorandum of Agreement between the Australian and State Governments formalises the cooperative monitoring of services of AASN Providers, defining scope and protocol for matters such as sharing information, overall and individual AASN Provider performance and compliance with the Australian Government's contract.
A Performance and Funding Agreement between the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training and the Queensland-based AASN Providers details each party’s obligations for the provision of services.
Search the website or phone 1800 020 108 for information on employing an apprentice or trainee. You can also find AASN Providers approved by the Australian Government’s Department of Education, Skills and Employment to accept training contracts and undertake a range of functions in your area.
